Our plant holders are made of Canadian fir, the same wood used in the construction of houses and log cabins in Canada. It is a very hardy and strong wood that should give many years of enjoyment.
What Pots Will it Hold?
The hanging plant holders will accept terracotta pots from 6 inches to 8 inches. The plant stands will accept pots from 6 inches to 10 inches. We suggest not using pots larger than 8 inches on the hanging holders due to the strain this would put on the holder from the excessive weight.
Finishing the Wood
We have left our plant holders in their natural state so that owners can paint and finish them to match their garden or patio.
It is recommended that at least a finish be put on the holder, even if it is not painted. A good oil like linseed oil or danish oil will keep it looking nice for many years.
